Civil Aerospace Overview

Civil Aerospace

In today’s dynamic and challenging aerospace environment, EMCORE is known for agility, innovation, and commitment. We supply the world’s highest performance Fiber Optic Gyro (FOG) and MEMS Inertial Sensors & Systems. Our FOG and quartz MEMS products deliver a clear, continuously improving CSWaP advantage over alternative technologies.

The source of these advantages resides in advanced sense elements created from ultra-pure, monocrystalline quartz sensor material. Quartz’s exceptional strength and stability are complemented by strong piezoresistivity. EMCORE’s micromachining fab creates stable, accurate Quartz MEMS sense elements. Key benefits to our customers are:

• High precision and sensitivity
• No known wear-out modes or recalibration, driving down life cycle cost
• Industry-leading signal/noise performance

Our products have no moving parts, no friction nor known modes of wear out and require no recalibration or rebuilding; they deliver industry-leading reliability under the most demanding conditions. Customers are served by dedicated engineering technology and manufacturing operations excellence operating under an AS9100 Aerospace Quality System Certification.

EMCORE provides leading technologies and systems for civil aerospace including gyroscopes, multi-axis systems, IMUs and INS/GPS systems used for navigation, guidance, control, pointing and stabilization in commercial and military aircraft.
